So I picked up a mostly working Silverball Mania with a very hosed PF and a backglass missing large chunks of graphics...
...it got me thinking....if there was ever a time for a retheme, now might be it.
I'd like to keep the playfield layout and the rules so I don't need custom boards (although I would love to find the rumored tweak to the center horseshoe shot not spotting a letter each time). So with that in mind, I need to convert the letters SILVERBALL MANIA into a new theme with the same number of characters. So far I have thought of:
(the *'s fill in for needed inserts to match SILVERBALL)
Anyone have any other thoughts? Any ideas around the themes I've proposed? For example, if I went the WWFWrestle Mania route I was thinking the horseshoe shot is the ring, the kickback between the flippers would be like bouncing off the ropes etc.
